A Letter to Bob Weir
by Mary Moore

July 1998
BOHEMIAN GROVE ACTION NETWORK
P.O. Box 296
Occidental, Ca. 95465
Phone: 707-874-2248 or 707-829-2417


Dear Bob Weir:

t was shocking to hear a rumor that you and others from the old Grateful Dead were planning to play this year at Bohemian Grove. With all due respect, if this is true, please don't do it!!

My name is Mary Moore and I have been an activist since 1962 through the civil rights, womens, anti-war, environmental and anti-nuclear struggles. In 1980 I was part of the group that began protesting and calling attention to this very exclusive, all-male gathering that takes place every July five miles from my home. At that time we were a small group in Sonoma County, mostly from the statewide Abalone Alliance. We began doing research on the men up at the Grove with ties to the nuclear industry.

Within just a few short years we were a coalition of 72 groups involved with all the above issues and more. Because of a lot of national media coverage and almost 20 years of protests, we have begun in a very limited way to get the word out to the public about how the real decision making takes place in this country and on this planet. Unfortunately our voice and our resources are very small compared to theirs.

Over the years we have developed an informative slideshow which has been shown across the country, as well as in China in 1995 at the U.N. Global Womens Conference. At that time I made contact with a network of women—mostly women of color from all over the world who have invited me to show the slideshow at a worldwide womens gathering in South Africa this August. Because these women have experienced first-hand the results of their countries' involvement with the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (I.M.F.)—well represented at the Grove), they were very receptive to and interested in what we have to say. I have seen the interest grow elsewhere as more people begin to understand the relationship between our government, the Fortune 500, the banks, the military and the rest of us who are so affected by their policies.

The Bohemian Grove, while not the only gathering of the white male elite, is one of the longest (119 years) and most exclusive. I know nothing of your personal philosophy but I have always considered you the conscience of your group because of the support you have given over the years to many causes I am involved with. I am very surprised and disturbed at the thought that you would involve yourself with a place that is so opposite to these values. I heard this rumor while being interviewed on a local radio station here in Sonoma County. The host of the show told me off the air during a commercial break. I then contacted David Gans at KPFA who gave me the number of your publicist who felt perhaps you were doing this in an attempt to influence some of these men on their ecological policies.

Bob—I'm afraid that even if these men had a change of heart about some of their environmental decisions (it is in their own best interest after all) they are not going to change their policies on the human rights issues because their bottom line is, always has been and always will be, making a profit. If some people have to stay poor to keep these men rich then so be it. Their opening ceremony is after all the "Cremation of Dull Care"!!!

There is so much more I could tell you about these guys after studying them for so many years. We have had every aspect of the movement for peace, social justice and a clean environment protesting at their gates and I just can't imagine the reaction and disappointment if people find out you are playing up there. I am already receiving many media inquiries about who is coming this year (we have people inside who get us the schedule of the Lakeside Talks) and aside from the one radio personality who told me this rumor I have not mentioned it to anyone else in the media. I thought it was best to contact you first and let you respond.

If this is just a rumor, please let me know so I can do some damage control. If it is true, please re-think this decision. In my heart I can't believe that you would attend and support this gathering with your talent and presence if you understood who they are and at whose expense they make their money. We must build solidarity among those of us who care about this planet and the people and critters on it. Your attendence at Bohemian Grove would work against this goal.

My numbers are 707 874 2248 (H) or 707 829 2417. I'm a very early riser if you want to call before 8:00 A.M. I hope we can connect before July 17 which is when I will be contacted by most of the media. If you want to know more about Bohemian Grove and what we've done over the years you can check out our website at www.sonomacountyfreepress.org/ Look under Features on the cover page and scroll to Bohemian Grove. There is also a picture of their Cremation of Care up there.

Hopefully, in solidarity,

Mary K. Moore

The Dead toured the White House and met Obama there April 13, 2009.

"The surviving (and formerly feuding) members of the Grateful Dead had a secret impromptu meeting Monday evening with the man they credit with reuniting them: President Obama.

The president welcomed all the members of The Dead, who are performing tonight at the Verizon Center in Washington, to the Oval Office just before dinner last night. They didn't talk music as much as they did history - history about the Oval Office, and the president's desk.

Apparently the band was quite taken with how tidy the president keeps his desk. And how down-to-earth he seemed, according a source who was there.

"The president was so gracious. Really, really nice and so welcoming. It hit you: you're in the Oval Office, but it was so normal," the source told us.

The entourage included the four surviving members of the Grateful Dead - Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann - plus keyboardist Jeff Chimenti (from Weir's Ratdog) and Warren Haynes, who is joining the Dead on their 2009 spring tour as lead vocalist and guitarist. Some of them had their wives in tow."

Why does this bother you? If pissing on trees is a criminal offense then Dead Heads are no ones to complain. If you were a rich white dude would you rather hang out with Al Gore and Harry Reid? Wow, that sounds exciting. Gore can sell you some of his carbon offsets that HIS company sells in order to pay that big electricity bill for his mansion and private jets.

I hate to tell you that "pissing on trees" is called indecent exposure in many places. You will be written up if somebody calls the police. You'll go to court and maybe end up as a registered sex offender. Then we can see your mug shot on those public "Meghan's Law" websites, alomg with those rapists and the perverts who molested children. Rather extreme punishment for pissing on tree instead of in your pants...

I don't know about anyone else here, but personally I don't hold Bobby and Mickey up as any sort of examples of how I should live my life, look to them for moral guidance or expect them to represent my own belief system. They are musicians, and I have enjoyed their music- that’s it. They don’t owe me anything, and I don’t expect anything.

Last time I checked, this was still a more or less free country as far as associations go. Who the hell made Mary K. Moore and her ilk the social directors of America? What business is it of hers who the boys have their cocktails with? Seems to me that those people who are really bothered by this are sticking their noses pretty far into other people's private lives. Maybe it's just because I actually have a life of my own that I'm preoccupied with, but Bobby and Mickey can belong to whatever club they damn well please in my book.

Mary Moore---what, is she related to Michael Moore. No one is pure. I only pay them to play music, not drive my own personal ideals. Go ahead and blast me. Big whoop if they are going to play there, let them do what they want (isn't that a hippie ideal). There is more going on in the world than Bob and the boys plaing the grove.

Here's the first sentence from the protest letter:

"It was shocking to hear a rumor that you and others from the old Grateful Dead were planning to play this year at Bohemian Grove."

Looks like Mary is just trying to get a phone call from Bob. :)

Has it even been verified that he's a member of the club? I can't see a conservative holding a fundraiser for Obama and Barbara Boxer.

In a previous post from this archive it has been proven that both of them are members of this club. please research previous posts for Bohemian Grove.

I could make a rumor about someone on this archive and be prompted to prove my sources. Not the same for Mary Moore. You are the one mentioning political figures--not me. I am just stating that they can do what they want.

The Mary Moore letter is provided seperately to show that Weir and Hart are likely are 10-year members.

The Vanity Fair exposé was published in the May 2009 on-line edition. This was posted on the GD Forum on April 23, 2009. On page 2 in the exposé Alex Shoumatoff wrote:

"In 1999, Jock joined the club. The waiting list was 15 years long, and it still is. Twenty thousand “men of talent” are supposedly waiting to join, although some say the club, like many venerable old men’s clubs, is having trouble attracting younger members. He joined Five Easy Pieces. Music and theatricals, including elaborate productions in makeup and drag, are a big part of the festivities. “Sometimes the homoerotic themes can get weird,” one member told me. Great jam sessions at one camp or another last late into the night. Steve Miller is a member. He wears dark suits and looks like a hedge-fund manager until he straps on his guitar. Two former members of the Grateful Dead, Mickey Hart and Bob Weir, are members—entertainment providers are fast-tracked. Hart is in the posh Hill Billies camp, with Rumsfeld, longtime Grove father figure Walter Cronkite, Papa Bush, and Christopher Buckley (whose father, William F., was also a Hill Billy, hard as that is to imagine). Weir is in Rattlers. Strange bedfellows, one would think."

Thank you Monte. I know I can be irritating at times with my posts or responses, I just feel they should be able to play where they want. I'll take all the music I can get. I just hope the show says "uploaded by Rumsfeld". LOL

In 1967, Jerry Garcia said, "What we're thinking about is a peaceful planet. We're not thinking of anything else. We're not thinking about any kind of power. We're not thinking about any of those kinds of struggles. We're not thinking about revolution or war or any of that. We would all like to be able to live an uncluttered life, a simple life, a good life and think about moving the whole human race ahead a step."

Today, many people around the world are concerned that our Planet is rapidly approaching a vast tipping point, beyond which things get very ugly for all life on Earth. Not to mention, our news media and our journalists have sold out completely to corporate interests ONLY.

As both a human being and a musician, Pete Seeger still sets the bar well, imo. On January 18, 2009, Seeger joined Bruce Springsteen, grandson Tao Rodríguez-Seeger, and the crowd in singing the Woody Guthrie song "This Land Is Your Land" in the finale of Barack Obama's Inaugural concert in Washington, D.C. The performance was noteworthy for the inclusion of two verses not often included in the song, one about a "private property" sign the narrator cheerfully ignores, and the other making a passing reference to a Depression-era relief office.

pete-seeger.jpg?w=420&h=560

Pete Seeger quotes

"Some may find them [my songs] merely diverting melodies. Others may find them incitements to Red revolution. And who will say if either or both is wrong? Not I."

"I like to say I'm more conservative than Goldwater. He just wanted to turn the clock back to when there was no income tax. I want to turn the clock back to when people lived in small villages and took care of each other."

"I certainly should apologize for saying that Stalin was a hard driver rather than a very cruel leader. I don't speak out about a lot of things. I don't talk about slavery. A lot of white people in America could apologize for stealing land from the Indians and enslaving Africans. Europe could apologize for worldwide conquest. Mongolia could apologize for Genghis Khan. But I think the thing to do is look ahead."

"Technology will save us if it doesn't wipe us out first."

GD Forum post about Pete Seeger's 90th b'day bash. Many famous artists performed with Pete on May 3rd at Madison Square Gardens to celebrate with him and honor him. Warren Haynes performed there while he was touring with The Dead.

Thanks for reading. Please think about it. Peace to all.

I don't care that Billy and Mickey go, and have even posted before that I had the opportunity to go that I certainly would because it would be fascinating to rub shoulders with some of the participants. Also, I'd like to heckle Steve Miller during his set.

However, while everyone wants folks to "chill out" and
"get a life", perhaps they need to understand that what sets folks off about this and draws out the activists is that this is a place where it "appears" major policy international and domestic policy ideas get proposed and fleshed out among major political, corporate and media figures. I'm not saying it's more than rich guys getting drunk and pissing on redwoods, but the list of speakers and members published by the club makes it pretty clear these guys aren't just doing arts and crafts. And while I accept the argument that a relaxed setting where the world's elite discuss policy issues may actually allow them to come to more reasoned decisions and that familiarity among such people can ease negotiations and increase dialogue, I also accept the argument that these people are (perhaps) making decisions with far ranging implications and deep impacts on all of us without any public participation. Just food for thought. I understand these same guys rub shoulders at the G8, Davos, walking around the halls of powers, etc...

But don't take me too seriously - my office is next door to the CIA Director's son.

And if a Supreme Court justice nominee is forced to drop out of Belizean Grove, it does give you pause....

Your exactly right and that's exactly why the libs have the annual Renaissance meeting at Hilton Head Island. Neither the Grove or the Renaissance meetings get much press, but face it, some policy gets bought and sold at these events and there is no transparency involved.

Given that conservatives believe that liberals can do much harm to the world, and vice-versa, it will always stir up a lot of hot shit. Depends on who is in office at the time.

IMO there's a bunch of scarier shit going on that has nothing to do with party politics. "Follow the Money."
